High resolution RCA interconnect cable using much of the technology developed for our highly acclaimed Mavros & Asimi ranges. The Ascent Ultra RCA is a wide-bandwidth interconnect designed to maximise the performance of high performance audio systems.The Ascent Ultra RCA interconnect uses separate going and return conductors together with a woven copper/Mylar™ screen maximising resistance to RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) which can raise noise levels in a poorly shielded cable, resulting in a loss of low level detail. Two separate high purity OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) copper conductors with a high-efficiency/low impedance PEF dielectric are wired in a pseudo-balanced fashion again with the objective of reducing noise. Ascent is fitted with our low-mass wide-bandwidth Ultra RCA connectors (for fully balanced systems, the Ascent is available with XLR connectors.
- Ultra RCA Plug: The Ultra is a wide-band, OCC copper, constant impedance, self-cleaning, solder-free construction RCA plug.
- OCC Copper: OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) process was developed by Professor Ohno, from the Chiba Institute of Technology, to manufacture a very high purity single grain copper or silver. There are only a handful of companies in the world manufacturing via this method.
- PEF: PEF (Foamed Polyethylene). The foaming process uses a blowing agent, of which there are two types. Atlas use the gas-foamed method which creates a more inert, consistent and higher quality product.
- Twin Multi-core + Screen: A pair of identically matched conductors (one for signal path, the other acts as the return conductor) enclosed within a non-conducting screen.
